Analysis / Bias
In review, The Daily Expose reports on Covid-19 and Vaccines from a conspiratorial perspective. Articles and headlines offer sensationalized headlines such as this SHOCKING! – U.K. Government release the 9th report on Adverse Reactions to the Covid Vaccines. They also report patently false information such as this INVESTIGATION: 110K Deaths? NHS Data shows only 3000 people have died of COVID-19. According to IFCN fact-checker FullFact, this is not true. The majority of this website promotes anti-vaccination propaganda such as this Vaccination – The Greatest Lie ever told? They also promote anti-mask propaganda, such as this Face masks cause PERMANENT brain damage, according to Neurologist. There isn’t evidence to suggest that wearing a mask is harmful. In general, The Daily Expose promotes quackery-level pseudoscience and tin-foil hat conspiracy theories.
